This was a lovely walk along the water. We got to see two seals playing very close to us, but no whales while we were there.

We did this easy walk in the morning. It was windy and cold at the rocky out crop despite a strong sun. No whale sighting though. But it is certainly a nice walk with all the fresh air.

This little walk leads you to the entrance of the Saguenay Fjord. We stay about one hour at the point observing seals, birds and waiting for the magnificent sunset.

We went down this trail twice and saw belugas in the water the second time. It is very pleasant by the water and there are lots of places to sit and enjoy the scenery.

We walked on the rocks rather than the path, dipped our feet in the freezing water. Beautiful views and great picture taking spot. We actually saw a pod of belugas in the distance which was incredible.

It has two entrances: one is close to the whale museum and the other is further along towards the spit, beyond the docks where the whale watching boats leave from.
